Thanks Ranjit, I'll keep it in mind. Since I am anyway traveling back to Bangalore (and possibly getting a free ride back: am driving back a car for a friend) I thought I might as well get it done from a known place. I've got a lot of suggestions on chrome shops in Pimpri and other areas, but I'd rather not test any new waters now.

Thanks again for the info, will file it away for future reference.

Cheers,
Rahul

That will be more better

Anyways that will be more feasible as you can carry the stuff with you and ferry it back home; also check the Thickness level of the job to be done of the nickel plating before going ahead.

start a new thread of your bikes restoration process..

Happy Restoring though.

Regards,
Ranjit

Ranjit, I really wish I could! But the problem is I've been working on the bike myself, and its not really feasible to handle a cellphone camera (let alone the funky DSLRs etc) with greasy hands

I take a few pics at the end of the day's work (usually around 9pm), but it turns out that Nokia cellphone cameras and near-darkness dont mix well. Will upload a few pics of the closed crankcase, front suspension and miscellaneous other pics but I guess thats the best I can do.

Cheers,
Rahul

Talking about jawas will never be a spam Rahul. Please do go ahead and keep this thread alive. Waiting to see pictures of your bike. If you need any help, drop in a line.

[ The Instrument pod we have in our "Kyvaka" Jawas is LEATHER......its not Bakelite as most of us think.( I am talking about the outer portion of the pod, but the bottom portion is Bakelite.
Power twin sir, The Bakellite is somewhat half wood half leather as i could feel it on my bike Regards, Ranjit

Small update (or lack of it) on my Jawa: The left footrest seems to have been horribly welded and reinforced with a huge BOLT
Chopping it off ruined the centre rod. Got the three-piece rod set from bangalore, but they're cheap and flimsy. Got another rod of same ID and OD turned at a local lathe guy. Now I need to somehow grind off the mounting ears off the old rod and weld them onto the new one. cutting off the old rod from the chassis is also going to be hell. Chopping and welding everywhere!!!! HAAALP!!!!!!!

On the other hand, chrome parts returned from Vijayalakshmi in lovely condition. Managed to get original Jawa silencers. They've still got some small dimples even after tinkering, but I'm very happy with the chrome.

Overall, everything's ready for paint and assembly, if only I manage to weld a few things together and do two bushings on the chassis.

Cheers,
Rahul

You mean the footrest pipes or just the "killi" onto which the footrest rubber fits? Both may be available, not surprising at all. But there's a clear difference in quality and dimensions of the pipes. The left and right pipes have mounting ears that aren't in line, and the damn pipes are not even the same lengths as the originals (the right pipe is the length of the original left pipe)!! The wall thickness too is about 0.4mm less than the original. Bound to fail sooner rather than later. I'd much rather get the original or atleast fabricate something as good as the original. Its disgusting how we're expected to pay hundreds of bucks for this crap they sell in the market as "Jawa spares saar"!

Anyway, the rods arent the problem now, its the mounting ears: I need to chop them off the substandard pipe and weld them onto the new one. Am heading to the workshop in about an hour. Will post an update on this tomorrow. Its the only thing holding up the restoration. It might be a race against the monsoon at this rate.

Cheers,
Rahul

Looks like I've lost this race!
Still hunting around for the headlight nacelle and rear grabrail assembly, and the rains have begun in Pune yesterday. Would a paint-booth be feasible now, as opposed to the regular under-a-tree painter? And can anyone help with the headlight nacelle (or 'doom' like they say)?
These two parts are the only things remaining!

Cheers,
Rahul

Maybe you should write on traditionz@vsnl.net to a certain prashanth in bangalore ..he should have a spare set ...

A paint booth would help ,but depends on what paint you would be using and the base work already carried out ..

Isn't the certain Prashanth in a certain southern country right now? Nice to see you here.

The paint will be the regular Duco, bottle green (or the Atlas Goldline green), no lacquer. Tinkering all done, and primer too I suppose. Haven't visited the painter since the weekend. Only the painting remains.

Pat, still no pics of anything man! I've just got some "before" pics of her, which I'm sure you've seen on Facebook anyway. And two shots of the engine in the light of a table-lamp after assembling
Thanks for the number!!!!
